I had the battered chicken pad Thai which I would highly recommend. I am also alcohol free and the juices are made fresh and taste amazing which makes a change from standard drinks. The waiting staff are very efficient and polite. This is a gem of a place that needs to be visited and if I lived local I would visit more often
